Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Messick "It is important to me and my team to approach patient care so that we always treat the patient first, not just their disease.  When patients come with a diagnosis of cancer, they are vulnerable and need as much information as possible and education is key to their understanding why we manage patients in the manner that we do.  Listening to patients is vital to understanding just how much they understand and ensures we address their specific needs in the best way possible. "
